17 Before and After Photo Pairs of Malaysia

in Travel Nerd by

It’s not new to think about forests, beaches, mountains, and a mixture of cultures when you think about Southeast Asia. Malaysia, a country which is a part of the said Asian region, isn’t far to match to this image. Moreover, you shouldn’t miss the other minor details about this tropical country which includes its image as a shopping destination, a paradise for foodies, a hotspot for beach bums, and a home of diverse cultures made up by the Malays, the Chinese, the Indians, and many other ethnic groups. As Malaysia remains to be a huge jungle (more than half of the country’s surface exists of jungle), it continues to grow as a destination not only for tourists but also for international businesses.

But now, let’s pause the present and press rewind to the times when Malaysia was taking baby steps to development through these collection of black and white photos with their matching present photos.

EDAA pairs volcanic stone with pivoting glazing at Casa Meztitla in Mexico

in Design Nerd by

Huge glass doors pivot from the walls of this stone-walled residence, which sits at the foot of the Tepozteco Mountain just south of Mexico City (+ slideshow).

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

Casa Meztitla was designed by Mexico City firm EDAA as a holiday and retirement home for a couple in their sixties, who also wanted space to entertain their extended family and friends.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

The house is set against the backdrop of the rocky Tepozteco Mountain and the national parkland that borders Tepoztlán, a town approximately 50 miles south of Mexico City.

The remnants of an ancient temple – dedicated to the Aztec god of alcohol and fertility – are perched on the mountaintop, making the area a popular tourism spot.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

Responding to this setting, EDAA chose volcanic stone for the walls of the house, matching the tones of the mountain landscape. This is accompanied by large expanses of glazing, while concrete floor slabs create courtyards and rooftop patios.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

“The site was selected by me, in a sort of ‘find a great site and build a house’ commission,” explained studio founder Luis Arturo García.

“I selected this site, first, due to its non-expensive cost at that time. Second, because of its extraordinary natural landscape and its proximity to El Tepozteco mountain national park.”

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

“The house, built out of rough stone, crawls low under the trees, aligned with the vegetated-covered stone slopes,” he added. “The intention of the materials is to age naturally and blend with the context.”



The large expanses of steel-framed glazing pivot open from a sunken L-shaped living space into the surrounding gardens, while four bedrooms with glass walls have access to concrete patios with brightly coloured hammocks, located in the centre of the residence.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

“I wanted this to be a house that would never close itself, that would be constantly opened and in touch with nature,” García told Dezeen.”The idea of having the opening been closed by rotatory glass walls was a good solution.”

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

Flowering plants tumble over the exposed concrete and lime-rendered walls of the courtyards, while the monolithic white box that forms the upper storey emerges above the tree canopy.

This block contains an additional dining room with access to the rooftop terraces. An external metal staircase and passageway connects the dining area with terraces on the roofs of the lower floor block.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

White cement and lime plaster walls enclose each of the rooms within, while floors are made from polished concrete and carpentry from oiled pine and plywood.

The region experiences an abundance of rain during the summer months. The rain that falls on the site is collected by two reservoirs that supply the house with water.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

The first – located under a lawn in the courtyard – harvests and filters rainwater used for drinking, showering and laundry.

The second is a circular reservoir that is open to the elements. It collects used tap water that is stripped of soap and oils, before being diverted back to the house for flushing toilets and irrigating the gardens.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

“This storm-water management captures every drop of rain that touches the property, uses it in different ways, and does not let a drop out,” explained the architect.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

“This open reservoir is a fragile but effective ecosystem – it is balanced through water plants, fish and an electrical pump for water to be in constant movement,” said the architect.

Casa Meztitla by EDAA

During the drought season when fresh water sources are scarce, this open pool attracts wildlife. There is also a long narrow swimming pool for the residents.

Each and every of the nests seen underneath includes 1-five eggs, which get about five months to hatch. Imperial cormorants (also referred to as “imperial shags”) are colonial breeders that often return to the identical nesting grounds for a lot of a long time. This particular seaside is safeguarded to allow the seabirds to breed in peace. Examine out the extraordinary drone footage of the mass nesting below:
